The aloha spirit is coming to LARC Ranch for its 2016 fundraiser, the “LARC Island Paradise Luau.”
The event will feature music, food, games and a special salute to outgoing L.A. County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, a longtime supporter of the residential facility serving developmentally disabled adults.
“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank Supervisor Antonovich for his support of LARC for so many years,” said LARC Ranch Executive Director Kathy Sturkey. “Whenever LARC has needed help or support from L.A. County, Supervisor Antonovich and his staff have always been willing to lend a helping hand, whatever the issue was, whether it was navigating government program requirements or assisting in our efforts to resolve the water crisis in Bouquet Canyon.”
Sturkey added, “So, as we planned our fundraiser, we thought it would also be an appropriate opportunity to say ‘aloha and mahalo’ to Supervisor Antonovich.”
Antonovich is being term limited out of the Board of Supervisors after representing the 5th District, which includes the Santa Clarita Valley, since 1980. He is running in the November election for a state Senate seat representing foothill communities from Sunland-Tujunga to Upland.
He will be the guest of honor at the Sept. 18 fundraiser, whose proceeds benefit the nonprofit organization’s residential and day programs and services. LARC Ranch, in picturesque Bouquet Canyon, provides a safe home environment for more than 100 developmentally disabled adults.
The luau is scheduled to start 1 p.m. at LARC Ranch, 29890 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus. Adult tickets cost $125 each, and children’s tickets cost $50. A family package of $325 includes tickets for two adults and two children. (www.larcfoundation.org)
